Dent Repair

Unfortunately overnight someone pushed a garbage bin into my front quarter panel and has left a dint!

There is not paint damage, however the dint is around 80mm in diameter. If the inner guard was removed you could easily access the reverse side.

So my question is, does anyone have any recommendations for workshops or mobile dint removers around the South Yarra / Prahran area? (Or even further out around Melbourne)

Thanks in advance!
Cheers!

Try Charlie Battisti & CO (BMW panel repair specialist) in Nunawading, they do paintless dent removal (PDR)

They only repair BMW's including the M's as I cannot see any other brands aside from beemers in their workshop.

I got a 10cm dent on my passenger door when some idiots open their car door too hard.

Mine cost $2xx to repair but varies, worst case you be paying $3xx.

Call Chris Hatten on tel:0418102500
He is great with dent removal and usually about $60-100 per dent

He PDR'd my hail damaged 125i a few years back and did an amazing job....he even fully detailed my car before I collected it

Couldn't recommend him high enough.

Richard fromDent Craft is good. He does a lot of work for Autoclassic so he knows his way around BMW's. He fixed a dent on my wife's Mini. I'm a car painter by trade and I couldn't tell it'd been damaged. It cost about $90 from memory.
